The newly-appointed Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath is on a two-day trip to Gorakhpur. Adityanath on Sunday congratulated party workers for win in election at the BJP office in Gorakhpur.
Adityanath told party workers to start preparing for upcoming Lok Sabha elections in 2019. He told party workers that there is a scope for even better performance in next Lok Sabha polls. In the last Lok Sabha polls Bhartiya Janata Party had won 73 seats out of 80 seats in the region.
UP CM said that with formation of BJP govt in the state, there will be an end to hooliganism. Adityanath said that all the criminals should better leave the state now. He also said that there will be proper law and order in the state.
Yogi Adityanath also urged the people to message him when confronted with wrong doings in the state. He asserted to the party workers that they need to work 18-20 hours in a day. He appealed that irrespective of the conditions, they all need to work very hard.
Adityanath said that with the overwhelming majority by people of Uttar Pradesh, their responsibilities have also increased.
No office bearer of the party or any public representative should undertake any contractual work (thekedaari). They should rather monitor them. And, if they find any discrepancy, they can inform me, so that action could be taken immediately against the guilty,” he said.
Addressing people at the BJP’s regional office on the second day of his Gorakhpur visit, he said, “After victory, a number of important works have to be accomplished. The people of the state have reposed their faith in us, and the onus is on us to meet their expectations, while ensuring accountability of our actions.”
Aditya Nath also laid stress on sense of responsibility and accountibility among his ministerial colleagues.
“I am the CM. (Surya Pratap) Shahi ji is Cabinet minister. But the post of CM or Cabinet Minister is not meant for flaunting. In fact, it is an indicator of one’s responsibility and accountability towards the public, which elected you with an overwhelming majority,” he said, pointing towards some ministers present there.
The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, who is still the local MP, urged the party to gear up for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
“In the next two years, you have to work tirelessly, irrespective of the fact that there is sunshine, rain or biting cold. Efforts should be made to ensure that the welfare schemes of the Centre percolate to the last strata of the society, and needy people are able to avail its benefits,” he said, amidst a thunderous applause from the audience.
